Cheryl was great at being straightforward and attentive to what we were looking for.

If you are into no-nonsense discussions and viewings, as well as extremely quick at responding to emails, calls, texts, etc. There was no point where we were waiting longer than a half hour for a response to any question or concern.

Michael Burmeister (Project Manager)

Cheryl did an amazing j ob, during a very trying time.

We started looking for a house right as the COVID-19 quarantine started. Cheryl did an amazing job of managing the pandemic issues, my travel time being 2hrs to look at homwn, and a last minute lender change. She was able to save us around $10k from the original asking price of the house during a sellers market. Then, when I needed to change lenders at the last minute She recommended someone that ended up saving us .75% APR, several thousand on closing, and a couple hundred every month on the payment. ll while getting us into a home that was a perfect fit in a perfect neighborhood my family.

Casey Tozier

We are very happy with our home buying experience, and that is in large part due to Cheryl's help throughout the process.

She explained what our expectations of the whole process should be and then was there every step of the way until we got the keys. Thank you Cheryl!


Cheryl came highly recommended from my parents as she had helped them buy/sell their last few homes in the Columbus area.

We had an amazing experience, and can't say enough good things about her. As my wife and I were first time home buyers, she helped guide us through the process. She's was always on top of things, listened well, and helped us understand the house and location that matched our situation. Great negotiator as well. Looking forward to working with Cheryl again in the future!

We have a family of four and I really felt like she cared about us from the day we met her. We now have a house that is perfect for us. Cheryl is honest and trustworthy and incredibly hard working. She is very bright and advocates for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sale a home.

Happy Home Seller

Cheryl Chapin was more than a realtor.

She provided countless resources to make our buying experience smooth and painless. Her knowledge of the industry was apparent from the moment we met her. She made us feel extremely comfortable with the process from day 1.

Jaci Loudenslager

Cheryl helped me quickly and efficiently sell my childhood home that had been serving as a rental for a number of years.

She was very responsive and dealt professionally with inexperienced buyer who had no idea what they were doing before successfully negotiating a solid deal with someone who would continue to use the home as an investment property. I can't say enough what a pleasure it was to work with her. I highly recommend Cheryl for all your real estate needs.

SL Fost

Cheryl was very helpful in the purchase of our concominium four years ago, and was similarly helpful as we sold the condo this year.

As we were buying the condo four years ago, she went out of her way to get things settled. As we were selling this year, she went above and beyond our expectations in helping us maintain, repair and eventually sell the condo from long distance. We had a few issues with unexpected plumbing leaks, and dealing with a high maintenance buyer, but Cheryl was able to coordinate everything smoothly and reasonably, with minimal headache to us. I would use her again, and recommend her without reservation

BJ Hebdon

Cheryl did an excellent job helping us understand the market and the best ways to navigate it.

With many moving parts and factors, Cheryl was patient in helping us understand options while choosing the best path forward. Not only were we able to secure the home we wanted most, but we were able to get more than we expected on the sale of our home. I’ve worked with other agents on previous real estate activities and Cheryl provides best in class service. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for representation.

Brendan Murray

Cheryl is an extremely knowledgeable and attentive agent.

She excels at understanding your need, and is continuously available throughout the home buying process. My wife and I could not have been happier with our choice of agent. Cheryl came highly recommended and exceeded all expectations.

Logan Diehl

Cheryl helped us sell our home and buy our condo.

Cheryl was extremely instrumental in both the selling and the buying. Her knowledge in the process was sharp and efficient. 100%, we would not have won the bid for our condo had Cheryl not been at our side. We could not be happier, and I would not use any other realtor, Cheryl is experienced, creative and was with us through both processes from beginning to end. Cheryl also makes the sometime stressful process fun!

Shawn Maghie (President )

Cheryl helped me find and purchase my dream home!

She was relentless in her search and very knowledgeable about the current real estate market. From financing to closing, Cheryl made sure the entire process went without a hitch. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a house!

Amy Huelskamp

Cheryl was great.

We were buying a house from out of town and she really did make the process surprisingly painless for us. In addition to that, she was always quick to respond to text messages or calls and always willing to be blunt and share her honest thoughts. Oh, and thorough. Cheryl noticed an issue with the contract the seller drafted up that would've likely caused lots of headaches down the line if it wasn't caught. We would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who is seriously looking for a house and is ready to buy.

Dan Pinciotti

Cheryl was very diligent, knowledgable and available through the process.

Great for first time home buyers and others as well.

Matthew Jones (Engineer)

Cheryl is the best.

Hands down. Always available. Super knowledgeable and easy to work with. Her expertise and knowledge of strategy secured us our home without even being the highest offer. Have already recommended her to friends and family and will continue to. Cannot go wrong working with her.

Daniel Culp

Cheryl is a joy to work with.

She really listens to her customers needs and responds quickly to concerns. We told her what we wanted in a house and she brought us to the perfect place on the first visit! She got us a contract within a month and a half and a price we were happy with. I will readily refer her to any friends or family who is looking for a realtor

Annie All

Cheryl is great in every aspect of the buying process.

Her knowledge, advise, and negotiating skills got us into the house we wanted to be in at a great price. I highly recommend her for all buyers!


Cheryl provided an excellent overall experience.

I was a first time home buyer and Cheryl made my fiancé and I very comfortable throughout the process. She started off with a meeting where she went over every step of the home buying process and what to expect from each one. When we started looking at homes she was very candid on each one we went through and helped work towards the exact specifications and price we wanted. When we found a home we wanted to offer on she made a recommendation on an offer based on the research she did on other homes that had sold in that neighborhood in the past year. Although the process went fast from the first offer (which she had warned us would happen), we felt comfortable throughout and felt well guided all the way through closing. I was very happy with the experience and would strongly recommend her to others.

Home Buyer

My wife and I recommend Cheryl if you are looking to buy or sell as home in the Columbus area.

We do so because she is - Very knowledgeable of the neighborhoods, local taxes and rules, pricing levels, and the buying/selling process - Works very hard for her clients -Is highly organized in leading you through the process and in showing homes (in our case as a buyer). - On top of all of these skills, she is friendly and fun to work with. In our specific case, she spent time with us to fully understand what we were looking for in a home, price level, and location. Where there was uncertainty, she helped us zero in on our priorities. She then applied the necessary filters to identify homes we might be interested in. Whenever we came into town, she would line up homes we had indicated we were interested in. This was done in a very organized fashion to get the most out of each day. When we found the home we wanted, she shifted into high gear, putting in extra effort, to quickly help us get a contract in place. Between then and closing, she was always prompt and helpful regarding the many questions we had (even though I know she was busy treating other clients the same way). Thanks to Cheryl, we now own a home that not only meets, but exceeds our expectations. If you need a realtor, talk to Cheryl; it will be worth your time.

Robert N Guenther, Jr (VP- Product Development)

We met Cheryl Chapin by chance during a showing for a condo she was listing.

I liked her direct style and her extensive knowledge. Cheryl helped my wife and I through the process of selling our old house and buying our new condo (downsizing). I would highly recommend her as your realtor of choice!

Jeff Fike

We would not hesitate to work with Cheryl again and highly recommend her.

She was very helpful in getting us started in loan qualification which, of course, was important to moving forward. She was knowledgeable every step of the way and was a pleasure to work with. We felt very well supported in the process necessary to arrive at closing. She also applied creative approaches to dealing with our situation and achieving our goals in a timely manner. Thank you for the opportunity to review our experience with Cheryl.

Susan Lee

Cheryl was a fantastic agent.

She really listened to our needs and went the extra mile to make sure we felt confident in every part of the home buying/selling process.

Josh Cooper

This is our second time working with Cheryl.

She helped us buy our first home more than a decade ago, and we returned to work with her again because we were happy with how she helped us in the past. This time around my husband and I were not quick buyers, but Cheryl stuck by us. She helped us look for a home for more than a year! When we finally found a house that we felt was right for us, it was an intense situation with half a dozen offers on the table. I can’t imagine trying to navigate this crazy market without an experienced realtor by our side. My husband and I honestly feel we would not have gotten into contract without Cheryl’s guidance, and when issues came up with the house during inspection, she helped us navigate through to closing. Once we finish moving we are putting our current house on the market, and we are trusting in Cheryl again to represent us as sellers. Thank you Cheryl!

Stephanie Sherman

Cheryl helped me with my first home purchase, and she was a helpful resource throughout the process.

I learned a lot and was happy with my contract and final deal. Cheryl is easy going and fun to deal with.

Alex Shevchenko (CTO)

Cheryl was incredibly helpful from day 1 starting with pre approval through closing.

She made sure we understood each step and clearly knows her stuff!


Cheryl was amazing.

She was very patient with us. We had a very limited budget, and most of the houses we like were out of our budget. It was definitely a roller coaster of emotion being first time home buyer. Cheryl did a great job making the process easy for us. She was very responsive and always there to answer any questions or concerns you may have. All in all, we found a house that we loved because of Cheryl.

Jeremy Chen

Cheryl was very insightful about the area that I was looking to buy in.

She gave me advice, helped me find homes to view that fit my criteria, and ultimately negotiated an offer so that I could buy a home. I appreciated that Cheryl was honest and professional! I would definitely call her in the future if I needed to buy or sell a home.

Tara Liston

I have worked with Cheryl on several different transactions, both on the buying and listing side of real estate.

I have total trust in Cheryl as my Realtor. Cheryl is professional, gives me sound advice when it comes to negotiating, very thorough and really takes the time to understand what you are looking for in a property and follows through.

home buyer and seller

I used Cheryl to both sell my house and buy my next one.

I can honestly say, that I would not want to go through this process with anyone else. Every concern, every worry, every question... Cheryl handled. There was never a time that she didn't have the answers or make the arrangements. When the sellers of the next home we wanted to buy were being difficult she kept me informed on every step and with sound advice, but still kept me protected from the drama of it all. And as far as selling my home, she is worth every penny. I could go on and on and on and on... bottom line, look no further for your Realtor because you found her.

Brian Swank

Cheryl did an amazing job helping us as first time home buyers.

She made the entire scary process very easy and exciting. She knows her stuff and is great at what she does. I will highly recommend her to anyone! We definitely got a motherly vibe from her throughout the whole process which we love. It made the whole house hunting and closing process fun, not stressful at all. We love you Cheryl! Thank you for all your hard efficient work!!

Alyssa Bowsher

An absolute god-send.

She was such a hard worker, available at all times of the day, on weekends, and in the evenings. She made this process very smooth for us, and directed us through the hard days! We couldn't have done it without her!

Samantha Richardson

Cheryl was the best realtor we have ever worked with!

The experience with her was extremely professional, direct and to the point. Without her, we would not have been able to secure our dream house! She had conducted herself with the utmost professionalism, spent over 3.5 hours explaining everything about the buying process, gave us recommendations for lenders and answered questions that we had, put a strategy in place in approaching the seller’s agent and presented a well put together package, was trustworthy and we believed in her ability to represent us and, most of all, got the deal done!

happy client

Words cannot describe how awesome Cheryl is!

She really went above and beyond for me and my husband to help us get the perfect home. She helped us navigate our way through the complicated process of buying our first home - and my husband and I both had atypical jobs/situations, so the task wasn't easy. Cannot give her higher recommendations.

Liz Robison (MD)

Cheryl was extremely helpful in assisting me in the home buying process.

This was my first home on my own and cheryl was helpful in all matters of the process for me. Her expertise was invaluable. I would recommend her to anyone.

MIke B

Cheryl, did a great job in all areas for us and we ended up with a wonderful home.

Great local knowledge, talent and responsiveness. Very professional.

Greg hopkins

Cheryl performed exhaustive market research before listing our condo, which assured that the property would sell quickly and even at a higher price than we had hoped for.

We've moved a great deal over the past two decades, and have dealt with quite a few agents. Cheryl was far and away the best of them -- prompt, helpful, always available with expert insights and advice. She's a treasure.

Douglas Gray (Home owner)

Cheryl is a true professional that was up front and honest in her communication and made the process very smooth and as stress free as possible.

She asked the right questions in determining our needs and delivered on any commitments that she made. I would highly recommend Cheryl to family and friends!

CA Salmons

I had a great experience working with Cheryl!

She helped me buy my first home and I'm so happy to have had her help when hit a few bumps in the road. She made the whole process very easy and understandable, and was always available when I needed her. I highly recommend her!

Kate Kubota (Research Protocol Analyst )

I had the pleasure to work with Cheryl on buying my first condo.

At first, I was very nervous about the complexity of the whole process but Cheryl made everything so easy and simple for me from start to finish. She is always available to help, very knowledgeable, fun to work with, sharp, and always puts her clients' best interest before anything. Chery is a wonderful agent and always goes above and beyond to satisfy her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Hamza Bouladab (Engineer)

Cheryl is very responsive and flexible with schedules--she was happy to meet us within an hour of a house being listed.

Most importantly, perhaps, Cheryl is very knowledgeable about the industry and is able to craft creative offers to ensure a success, which is absolutely necessary in Columbus' current market. I would unequivocally recommend Cheryl to anyone looking for a reliable and intelligent advocate!

Amy Prack

Sold our house quick for more than we expected, and was always helpful throughout the whole process.

Cheryl's knowledge of the current market pricing was very helpful for setting a good price, and we had lots of showings due to her excellent listing skills. Will use Cheryl again when needed.


Words cannot describe how awesome Cheryl is!

It's me and my husband first time buying a house and Cheryl was so patient with us. She knows her stuff and is great at what she does. She is quick at responding even when she's on vacation. She's also quick at writing up a contract too! Because of Cheryl, we found the perfect house! I would highly highly recommend her! Thanks Cheryl!

Si Chen

Cheryl was so helpful to us in finding our first home that we had to work with her again to find our second home.

Cheryl was very honest with us about what sort of things we should have been looking for in a home/area and she helped us find another home that we love! Would highly recommend her to anyone!


Cheryl was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and helpful every step along the way of finding us a home and selling our home.

She had great responsiveness to every question and made sure we understood every step of the process. She understood what we were looking for and stayed on that same path throughout our search. She was great at communicating with other realtors, vendors and any other outside resource. Thanks for everything Cheryl!

Kelly Meeder

I couldn't be more happy with our decision to use Cheryl.

She helped us purchase our home below market value. I have no doubt that her experience and professionalism made the difference for us. Start to finish it was a great experience. Best of all, we now consider Cheryl a friend and will undoubtedly rely on her expertise again in the future. Thanks Cheryl!

nate shimp

Cheryl is professional and knowledgeable always working to succeed.

She stays on top of things and always keeps the ball rolling. Cheryl keeps me informed and gives me advice on my listing. I trust Cheryl and would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell a home.

Debra Newsome

Being new to the Columbus area, there was a lot to learn about the housing market, school districts, and areas that met our needs.

From the moment we met Cheryl, we were nothing but pleased by her friendly, honest, trusting demeanor. She provided us with appropriate insight to the Columbus housing market and gave us great advice for making our offer. In fact, our first offer was accepted by the seller, and that is with great credit to Cheryl's advice. Cheryl was available whenever we needed her, and she even accepted phone calls/texts on vacation, while we were in negotiations over the inspection reports. She made sure that we met all of our timelines set forth by the bank and the seller's agent, and she reminded us to complete tasks when needed. I appreciated Cheryl's honesty the most - she was kind and thoughtful, but also didn't "sugar coat" any feedback. I would highly recommend her to any person looking to buy a house in Columbus.

Lindsay Marx

met Cheryl when I went with a friend who was looking at a condo.

I had been starting to look for a home but had kind of gotten distracted and it got put on the backburner. Cheryl's enthusiasm about everything really got me excited again so I left my info with her and told her what I was looking for. Within a day or 2 she had a decent list of homes and within a week or two we scheduled times to go look at them. When I found the house I wanted Cheryl helped me work quickly and put in an offer and was very knowledgable and confident in helping me. She was always one step ahead of the game and always responded very quickly by phone, email or text. I am indebted to her for helping me through the remdy process as the house definitely needed somethings but really helped my stick to my guns and get what i needed/wanted. In the end I ended up with the perfect house with needed updates at the price I could afford and I couldn't beleive how easy the whole process was!! Added bonus was her excited attitude towards everything which really helped everything stay postive even when I was getting stressed out!

LeeAnna Shepherd

Cheryl was FANTASTIC!

She worked tirelessly from the start by showing us our new house all the way through to selling our current home (in 24 hours!!!!!) There is no substitute for her experience and relationships in the Columbus real estate community. She is VERY responsive to our communication and usually a step ahead! Thank you Cheryl! We love our new home!

Amy Cooper

We were new in the area with little knowledge about the real estate and house-hunting process.

Cheryl had to perform several roles to help us: a coach, adviser and realtor. She quickly understood our preferences and budget and adapted her strategy accordingly. We made demands on her time and she always responded with enthusiasm and without showing any frustration with our inexperience. We withdrew at least two offers but Cheryl was patient and never gave up on us. Once we set our mind on a house, Cheryl negotiated on our behalf and managed to get us a decent reduction from the asking price. When the Inspection showed a need for some minor remedies, Cheryl negotiated an additional reduction in the price. Thanks to Cheryl, we finally own a house we are happy with. To sum up Cheryl is friendly, patient, energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and skilled negotiator


Cheryl did a great job!

We were looking for a house with investment potential. She guided us to the areas that would suite that goal. Cheryl stayed on top of the purchase process and made sure things progressed as they should.

Regina Cox

I'm so glad for having Cheryl as my agent to buy my first house.

There were certain criterias for the house that my family want or need. I was worried that the process of finding the house would be hard. But then, Cheryl came and after only some viewing, we found our home! As the process moved along, I always felt she was really helpful and also really quick at getting back for my questions. She also always keep me up to date with the process and remind me of the things that need my attention.


Cheryl goes above and beyond what is required for a good realtor.

Her enthusiasm and expertise gives a lot of comfort, especially to first home buyers. She has an expansive network of other experts that can provide their services, whether it is an inspection agent or a technician. She is not afraid to be direct and honest, which helps cut to the chase and avoid the fluff. I would recommend her to any of my friends and would recommend to everyone to at least have a conversation with her when deciding on a realtor.

Joshua Kim (Regulatory Specialist)

Cheryl helped us find our dream house in a very tough sellers' market.

As first time home buyers, it was great having an expert to ask questions. She talked us through the entire process each step of the way, and we left very knowledgeable and very satisfied. Would highly recommend.

Andrew Zeiser

We loved working with Cheryl!

As first-time homebuyers, we were looking for a realtor to help us get the best house for our money. She did just that and then some. Who knows where we would be living without Cheryl's help! From our first meeting with Cheryl, she went over everything in the home-buying process so that we were comfortable with the entire process, from start to finish. She gave us pointers on which areas of Columbus were in our price range and fit our needs. When we found two homes that we loved and had a hard time deciding which one to put an offer on, Cheryl gave great advice as to which she believed was the better investment, would yield better resale value, etc. Thanks to Cheryl's expertise, we put an offer on the house that night and the sellers accepted it 2 hours later! After the inspection, we had no idea how to handle some of the obscure things that came up - the need for a radon mitigation system, an outdated air conditioner, etc. Cheryl gave us the advice we needed once again, resulting in us getting extra $$ in closing costs - which came in handy big time. Then, we were crushed when the bank appraisal came back lower than our offer. We were convinced we had lost the house but Cheryl said she would take care of it. Fast-forward a few hours later and the sellers had agreed to the lower price AND were still paying the extra $$ in closing costs. We couldn't believe it! Cheryl not only worked wonderfully for us, she was also able to communicate and deal with our lender and the seller's agent extremely well. It might not seem like a big deal, but it made the whole process a lot smoother and we as buyers truly didn't have to worry - Cheryl was there to handle everything! Long review made short, Cheryl is the reason we are in the home of our dreams. Not only is it within our price range, we love everything about it. There are plenty of reviews out there boasting about the perfect home - I didn't believe them either. But believe me when I say Cheryl got us the PERFECT home. I could go on for days, but simply put, Cheryl is the best!


Cheryl helped us get a great house in Clintonville in a very tough market.

She helped us find someone to finance our mortgage, stayed on top of things during inspection process and helped us find and electrician after we moved in. She is very professional and helpful. I would recommend her to anyone!

Sally Padgett

Cheryl made our first home buying experience a breeze!

We asked Cheryl to show us a house that was already in contract. Cheryl gave sound recommendations on next steps and strategies, and we ended up closing on that same house - our dream home! My wife and I honestly believe we would not have landed the house with any other agent. She is responsive, professoinal, and made this process as smooth as it can possibly be. Thank you Cheryl!


Cheryl Chapin is an EXPERT!

She has amazing negotiation skills and is very precise in every step. I highly reccomend Cheryl!

Maria Brown (Home buyer )

I could not be happier that my husband and I worked with Cheryl.

We were brand new to home buying and to Columbus and Cheryl talked us through everything we needed to know. She was very candid with us and truly helped steer our decision making. I can't begin to articulate how comfortable I felt working with her and how much I trusted her throughout the entire process. She is incredibly knowledgeable, personable, fun and caring. I would be thrilled to recommend her to anyone!

Megan Zeiser (Home Buyer)

My husband and I had ONE day to find a home in Upper Arlington for us and our 4 young sons.

We were moving from Maryland and knew almost nothing about the area. Not only did Cheryl find us our PERFECT home in one day, we left with a really excellent sense of the layout of the town, the culture & offerings of the city, and a great feel for the schools (which was the most important thing for us). Cheryl had roughly only a day's notice to prepare for us, and she lined up numerous house showings, (un-requested!!) personal school tours, and even worked her magic to squeeze a home inspection in before we left to save us a trip back! All the while, Cheryl made what was a very stressful process for us so much fun. We laughed, we joked, we felt like we had known her for years. She has an ease to her that makes people feel comfortable and yet a very "get it done" approach that is right up my alley. After we left Ohio, she handled everything for us well while we were out of state, and we are still relying on her as a resource for recs for home project work, restaurants, etc. I can't say enough about how much our whole family loves it here in only 2 short weeks, and we completely have Cheryl to thank for that!!!!!

ching queen

Cheryl did a wonderful job helping my wife and me navigate the complexities of buying our first home.

Even more she served as our advocate and was invaluable in navigating some of the tough conversations.

Brian Zakrajsek (Solution Architect)

Cheryl started us at an asking price that we would not have known to start with and we we were able to take the best offer (of several) within 24 hours.

Cheryl helped us negotiate our terms to leave when we wanted to. She was there every step of the way until the day we handed the keys over to the new owner. It was difficult to say good bye to our first home, but Cheryl made the process perfectly smooth

n hagey

Cheryl is the best real estate agent in CBus.

She really cares about her clients and gets the job done. She also knows how to find the right space and has so much knowledge on the Realtor system. Highly recommended.

Chris Nemeth (Business owner. )

I have purchased and sold several houses through Cheryl.

She is very knowledgeable in her field, always professional and willing to go the extra mile. I'm sure you will enjoy working with Cheryl!

Rori Lowe (Investor)

Cheryl represented us as new buyers in the Columbus area.

She was thorough and readily available to help us find and negotiate our home purchase. Cheryl did a great job for us

John McCormack

Our house sold unexpectedly and we needed something that would work for our family fast.

Cheryl was great to deal with and very prompt. Cheryl was very knowledgeable and we will be sure to contact her regarding our next search.

home seller and buyer

Cheryl is great!

We met her at an open house and thought so much of her, we gave her a call when we decided to sell two homes and buy another. She helped out in three different neighborhoods in Columbus, knowing something about each of them. She is knowledgeable about the entire process of both buying and selling. I would highly recommend her.


First of all, it's worth saying that the Columbus real estate market is a seller's market.

for mid-range buyers it's hard to get an agent to pay attention to you and especially hard to get your offer considered by the sellers. what makes it worse is that houses are on the market for sometimes less than 24 hours before they stop accepting bids, meaning your agent must be always ready to pounce when a listing comes up. Cheryl was great to work with. She is always responsive, always willing to give her honest opinion, always willing to give clear, realistic analyses of houses and neighborhoods, and always with a smile on her face. If I had the money to buy another house, I wouldn't consider any other realtor.

Clintonville Buyer

We were referred to Cheryl by a close friend.

Cheryl was a delight to work with! She is very experienced not only with sales (very strategic!), but also with home maintenance, and has a number of contacts for any job! She kept in contact with us consistently, even after closing. She's a wonderful realtor, and we are happy to now call her our friend :)

Cheryl made my first home buying experience a breeze.

I was on a tight schedule and she was always available to look at several homes in different parts of town. Will definitely look to her for guidance on my next purchase.

Josh T (Market Development Manager)

Cheryl is very knowledgeable about the market and purchase process, and she is a skilled negotiator.

Cheryl is also incredibly communicative and responsive--she listens to what her clients are looking for and ensures that their needs are met. I would recommend Cheryl (and have done so) to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Columbus area.

Anne Marie Schloemer

We have bought 2 houses & sold 1 with Cheryl Chapin.

All were complicated with very short timelines. Cheryl was very knowledgeable and managed to include our 4 young kids in the process, which was very important to us. We hope to not move again, but if we do, we would use Cheryl again 100%.

Cheryl sold this condo at the highest price any condos have sold for in this small condo community and did so within a month.

She was always pleasant and responsive. We are pleased to recommend her.

home seller

We purchased a home in German Village and if not for Cheryl's knowledge and experience in negotiating the deal, we may not have been able to purchase the home.

The home we bought had a potential buyer in front of us and a potential buyer behind us. Cheryl helped us quickly put a contract together that allowed us to get second in line and when the first deal fell through, we were able to buy the house. Cheryl was extremely responsive to phone calls, emails and when there was a short fiasco with a lender we originally picked (not her reference) she helped steer us in the right direction.

R and M

We were very pleased with the professional, friendly service Cheryl delivered.

She is knowledgeable in assessing the property, strategic in pricing and considerate of your time. She understands the financial and very personal aspect of a home sale and was in regular communication to keep us informed every step of the way. Cheryl is a strong advocate for her clients and demonstrated excellent negotiating skills throughout the process. Our listing was exceptional, the home sold quickly at a great price and we highly recommend placing your trust in Cheryl to list your property.

Mark and Anna Pyle

I am very satisfied with the recent purchase of the house.

I love my new house and its surroundings. I must also appreciate that Cheryl has very current information and in-depth knowledge of the real estate market. I will not only like to collaborate with her in my future endeavors but will also recommend her services further to my circle of friends and family!! I would like to thank Cheryl once again for her honest efforts in getting me exactly what I wanted.

Hailey Kim (Client)

Cheryl is who any realtor should be.

She is very experienced in her work, has vast knowledge of the Columbus real estate market, constantly working in the interest of her client, does not sleep on even minor issues. She is a very seasoned realtor . I would ask her again for any future need, and definitely would recommend her to my family and friends .

Philbiko LLC

Cheryl was terrific!

She lead me through the whole process of buying my 1st home. Professional, energetic, knowledgeable and efficient! She made buying my home fun and stress free. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for a great home buying experience.

Olivias mommy

Cheryl is the best!

She goes above and beyond and is available day or night, seven days a week. She also takes the time to patiently explain what everything means in understanding terms. I recommend her to all my friends!

Jeannette Lozen

We had a contract fall through with a different agent and decided to find someone new to help us find a new home quickly.

Cheryl showed us several potential homes and we found one within about a week and were able to close in about 3 weeks from signing a contract. She dealt with some tough negotiations with the seller, and helped us find an amazing loan officer. The closing went very smooth and she even sat with us and the sellers at the closing table. I would highly recommend Cheryl. She is very professional and knowledgeable. She is also a down to earth, very nice person to deal with! Highly recommend!!!

Lisa Claar

We contacted Cheryl about six months before our planned move.

She was very professional and efficient in coaching us in getting our house in good order. At the right time she researched the market and we agreed on an appropriate price. We were in contract within two days of listing and closed a month later. We accepted an offer that was almost exactly the listing price less some minor closing costs we agreed to pay.


Cheryl started with me at square one on my first home purchase and was critical in helping me find the right house in the right location and I couldn't be happier.

Thanks Cheryl!


Cheryl is a joy to work with and was very motivated to help me find the right home.

She is a veteran who knows all of the Columbus market well, and knows good people to help with all your needs. She was always available to show houses on short notice and was quick to write an offer that landed me a great deal during a competitive time for buyers. She is so good we are in the process of buying an investment property now!

Michael Cahill (Senior Systems Analyst)

Cheryl is truly the best.

This is our second time working with her, and if we ever sell and buy again we will work with her without hesitation. She was very knowledgeable throughout the whole process. She was always quick to respond to texts, phone calls, emails etc. Her negotiation skills are top notch. She’s honest and worked hard to get us what we wanted. We learned this time around how important it was to have a top realtor and we’re so glad she was on our side. She helped us through a very stressful situation and in the end we got the house we wanted. This job is no joke and Cheryl excels at it in every way!

Danielle & Joe

Cheryl was very knowledgable and friendly.

We were under contract on our house 10 days after we met her! She made us feel very comfortable during the process, which was really helpful since this was our first time buying a house.

Jeb Slaven

This was our 4th transaction with Cheryl and again she didn’t disappoint.

She is great with kids on top of being great at real estate, which makes her very desirable to work with as a family. We would use her again in a heartbeat!

Kelley Ching

Cheryl was a fantastic realtor to work with in buying our first home.

It took us almost a year to find the perfect house but she never shied away from showing us all the listings we requested to look at and reached out multiple times when she heard of listings coming up on the market that fit what we were looking for. She was very knowledgeable with the local market and was quick to point out the pros and cons of each house. We felt like we got the best deal for the home we wanted. I would definitely recommend Cheryl to help you find your next home!

natalie stuhl

I worked with Cheryl for both the buying process and, eight years later, the selling process.

She was trustworthy, competent, well-informed, and great with her communication. I’d definitely recommend Cheryl for the buying or selling process.

Matt M.

Let me first start by saying that we had no idea what the heck we were doing that day in March when we decided to go shopping for our first home.

Cheryl was the listing agent of the first house we looked at and It was obvious that we were new to the process. We decided to solicit her help in our search that day and the rest is history. Cheryl did a fantastic job of leading us through the process from start to finish. We were not the easiest people to deal with by any means. We probably changed our ideal home wish list and geographical location preferences 20 times over the course of the next several months. That, combined with the fact that we were searching for a home in one of the hottest seller's markets in years, made for a very interesting journey. We didn't buy the first house that we met Cheryl at (or the next 50 for that matter) but she made the process much less stressful and much more fun than we could have ever hoped for. We ended up buying a house a mile up the road from where we live, in a neighborhood we love and know very well. Cheryl was great and we would highly recommend her.

Austin Kiger

Cheryl has helped my husband and I buy and sell three houses in the Columbus area.

She’s also assisted both of our sons in purchasing homes. Cheryl is smart, detail oriented, organized, extremely responsive, and a tough negotiator on behalf of her clients. I can’t imagine that there is another realtor in Columbus who even comes close to her package of skill sets. She is also has a great sense of humor and it is fun to collaborate with her! I highly recommend her services.

Terry Spaeth (Project Manager)

Cheryl is beyond outstanding in every aspect of partnering with you to buy/sell a home!

Her knowledge, expertise, and professionalism is absolutely unmatched! Cheryl is someone you can trust, is always available, and works relentlessly to put her clients' needs first. Her experience shows every step of the way. She provided peace of mind in all three transactions in which she was my agent. I would never use another realtor!

Eric Wrightsel

Cheryl was integral in helping us land the perfect house in Columbus.

She helped make the process seamless, even though we were living out of state while we searched. We came to town to check out some houses and, at her suggestion, we drove through the neighborhood we liked one last time before leaving town. Low and behold, we saw a for sale sign in front of a house before the MLS listing even went up - and now we live here! She was a true advocate for us as her clients; she is definitely someone you want in your court throughout the buying process. We highly recommend Cheryl!

Ashley H

We utilized Cheryl's services when our daughter, a young first-time home buyer, was in the market for a condo in a very desirable area.

Cheryl was excellent to work with in every respect...she was knowledgeable, accessible, quick to react when desirable properties became available, honest, and very personable. She quickly gained our trust and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing a great real estate agent!

Brenda Liston

Cheryl worked hard to find us a great house.

Her knowledge of the local are helped a lot since we were from out of state.

Craig Cox

Cheryl was friendly, knowledgeable, and an all-around rock during my recent home-buying adventure.

A lot of really frustrating things happened, and she was always very positive and involved and advocating for me throughout the whole process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying a home in Columbus!



She will definitely be receiving a future call whenever we are on the market again. I will and have referred to any and all people I know ! She is that kind of special. Just made the process so much easier by being well knowledgeable and explanatory throughout the whole process .


If you’re looking for a realtor, your search ends here!

Cheryl is a ‘make-it-happen’ woman. She works to ensure you don’t get taken advantage of, and is not afraid to tell you if she thinks there are better options. Cheryl has always gone above & beyond for us, and we wouldn’t choose to work with anyone else! Thank you for everything, Cheryl!

Kara Wrightsel

We were lost before Cheryl came along.

Now we are in the perfect home that has everything we wanted and Cheryl made the buying process simple and easy... couldnt be happier she assisted us.

Mar Justini

My husband and I sought out Cheryl to help us buy our first home after she came highly recommended from my husband's co-worker, and certainly understand why!

Cheryl was incredibly personable throughout the entire experience, ensuring that our best interests were always put first. She never made us feel uncomfortable for asking questions and challenged us to think outside of the box on things that we may not have previously thought about. We found our dream home thanks to her, and are so incredibly fortunate to have had her during our first home buying experience!

Lonni Agudelo (Operations Analyst)

I am extremely grateful for Cheryl for recently helping me buy my first condo.

Given it was my first time buying property I had a lot of questions and she was always very helpful in answering them. She definitely went above and beyond in regards of what’s expected from an agent. She was very friendly and professional, and was not afraid to be direct and tell you what’s what. She is very knowledgeable of the Columbus real state market and I will always recommends her for people trying to buy or sell a house/condo.

Diego Hildebrandt (Industrial Engineer )

My husband and I were first-time home buyers, and we could not have had a better experience.

Cheryl helped us with everything: from thinking long-term about our needs, right down to the details of how applying for our loan works. We felt very prepared for each step, and that's all due to her assistance and enthusiasm. We could tell from the start that it was her goal to help us acquire a home we truly love. It could not have happened without her! I will be recommending her to anyone I know who's looking for a realtor, as she's simply the best.

Tawny A Miracle

We had a great experience with Cheryl.

We were house hunting in a difficult price point with homes going under contract the day they went on the market. Cheryl always made herself available to see homes on short notice and provided good insight and advice. Things went very smoothly!

Tanya Sparks

Cheryl is an outstanding realtor!

Her insight an expertise allowed us to both sell and purchase a home with ease. She was a pleasure to work with and made our experience fun! I would highly recommend her for your home selling and buying needs!!

Steve Guglielmi (Executive Director )

Cheryl knows her stuff!

And is a ton of fun to work with. She is always on top of every little thing and has been doing this a long time so has seen it all. If you need someone to negotiate the tough conversations, she's on it. Cheryl is everything you want in a realtor; responsive and knowledgeable. And like I said, a ton of fun.

Mary Wilson

Thorough review of comparables for good pricing and negiociation strategies.

In depth local knowledge of UA and surrounding neighborhoods. Great local contractor contacts, knows how to get things done in a timely manner. Terrific experience.


As a first time home buyer, Cheryl held our hand and us navigate the process seamlessly.

She educated us throughout each step and if we had questions she was super responsive and patient. 5 years later Cheryl guided us through the sales process of that same house. Her industry knowledge helped us achieve top dollar and again made the process painless and stress free (as much as possible :)). We would strongly recommend Cheryl to anyone buying or selling a home.


Cheryl is truely a professional and kind realtor, an absolute gem to work with.

She really takes the time to learn what her clients want and works with them 24/7 until they find the perfect home. Her knowledge and experience make sure her clients get the best representation there is to get. Would recommend ( cannot recommend enough) and would use for any and future real estate deals, selling and buying

David Keiser

Cheryl was helpful in pointing out things we may not have noticed and helped us to make decisions We had so many questions as first time home buyers and she was patient through all of them.

We even had questions AFTER the closing, and she was still very helpful when other realtors may not have been. You will be in good hands!

Autumn Oker (Project manager )

Cheryl was energetic, honest and totally involved with the entire process of selling our home.

She explained every step of the preparations and guided us through the staging. Our house sold very quickly, again Cheryl guided us through the stressful requests of the prospective new owners. She went beyond normal cicumstances in helping us find repair companies while we were out of state dealing with the purchase of our new home. Cheryl was kind, attentive and very professional in her position as realtor. I would recommend her expertise to anyone. This was not our first home so we have dealt with several realtors. Cheryl is by far the best!!

Marcia A Schaefer

Cheryl is wonderful to work with!

It's a very tough market, but Cheryl is on top of it. She is so proactive and responsive, and connects with her clients on a personal level in a way that makes you feel as if you are her only client! I loved working with her and highly recommend her.
